Hi, I’m Emily, creator of The Floss Box, and I use needlework as a way to express my creativity and to share and connect with others. It is one of my biggest joys in life.

Embroidery is an ancient craft, and it’s also the perfect craft for today’s hectic world. It is meditative and gives our minds and bodies a chance to focus and recover from distraction and stress.

Embroidery is an artform and allows for unlimited self expression and all the uniqueness that comes with that expression. Each stitch is part of a process creating and becoming more than we are today. Embroidery is a journey deep into the inner world of play and fun and love. It has the power to connect us in a shared experience and passion.

Whether you are just beginning the journey or are a seasoned traveler complete with all the materials you could ever dream of, Welcome to The Floss Box. Please make yourself at home and enjoy a little of my world!
